2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Jimmy Butler


Position: Small Forward

Size: 6-7, 220

School: Marquette, Senior


Strengths:
  • Versatility
  • Guards multiple positions
  • Active in passing lanes
  • Mid-range game
  • Pull-up jumper
  • Finishing with contact
  • Body control when attacking the basket
  • Nice post-up game for a small forward
  • Unselfish
  • Doesn't force the issue
  • Free throw shooting
  • Has a great feel for the game





    Weaknesses:
  • Needs to become a more reliable three-point shooter
  • Often more worried about trying to draw contact than finishing
  • Not a great isolation player
  • Lacks NBA-level athleticism

    Summary: Jimmy Butler will not wow you with any certain area of his game, but he does a little bit of everything to help his team on the floor. He likely will end up going undrafted, but might be selected late in the second round if a team feels his versatility, especially on the defensive end, can earn him a roster spot.

    Player Comparison: Maurice Evans. A journey man throughout his NBA career, Evans is known for his intangibles and ability to defend more than anything else. Butler will have to follow a similar path if he is going to find a home at the next level since he is not a huge offensive threat.
